BOISE – Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and the Idahoans for Openness in Government group invite elected officials, government staff, journalists and members of the public to attend an online seminar focusing on public records and open meetings.

The virtual event will air from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on January 5 on YouTube. The seminar will also be archived on YouTube for those who cannot attend the live training, according to a press release from the GA’s office.

Wasden, Deputy Chief Attorney General Brian Kane and IDOG President Betsy Russell will be the panelists. The seminar is a continuation of the 50 open government trainings that Wasden has organized with IDOG since 2004, according to the statement.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has sidelined our in-person trainings for the past two years, so we’re overdue in talking to Idahoans about government transparency,” Wasden said. “I often hear from constituents who have questions about Idaho’s town halls and public records laws, and I know there are plenty of new officials and reporters sailing these waters for the first time. . The virtual seminar is a good way to meet this demand statewide. “

The event is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about Open Meetings and Idaho’s public records laws. Those interested can register online. Questions can be emailed during the event to questions@ag.idaho.gov.
